Christ Church Sandown
Thank you for visiting this website. We would be so glad to extend a warm welcome to you at any church service or event. Following the derestriction effective from Sunday 25th July we are gradually reactivating our church services and events albeit that we normally have a restricted programme over the summer holiday break.
Whilst the COVID restrictions were in place we began online services and our plan is continue these alongside the physical weekly physical service which takes place on Sunday mornings at 11am.
Physical service. Our next physical service will be a Communion service on Sunday 8 August at 11am. We can now sing in church after what seems a very long time and the seats are generally arranged normally. However, you are very welcome to continue to wear a mask and an area of the church has been designated for those who wish to remain socially distanced. For this particular service the bread only will be partaken by communicants.
Online service. Each week a new online service will be available to which a link is given below. The online service will often have content which is similar to the physical service albeit with the use of some of the many worship songs we have recorded over the past year.

The Worship at Home service includes a message, worship songs recorded by members of our worship group together with prayers and often interviews and/or special items.

Summer yarn bombing - 'I do like to be beside the seaside'
Next time you are passing the church or waiting at the traffic lights, you will be able to see the lighthouse adorning the gate, and the bunting fluttering in the breeze. Here it is:
It looks great!
